Features to avoid:

Some additions to your landscape architecture will actually detract from the value of your home and turn away potential buyers.

  • Large expanses of concrete

Ways to Maximize Space and Make Maintenance Easier

Make the best use of space by taking careful measurements before purchasing furnishings, and then determine the best placement for maximum enjoyment. When space is limited, go vertical by embellishing the décor with hanging plants and wall-mounted lighting or torches.

Your space will be easier to maintain and look great year-round by selecting plants that bloom in different seasons or evergreens foliage that looks beautiful throughout the year. Clean the patio and furniture regularly, and make sure to keep plans and trees pruned and tidy.

Lastly, safety and security are crucial when designing and building a front yard patio. Ensure that the walkway around your patio is level, free of obstacles, and well-lit to reduce any tripping hazards. Install motion sensor lights and security cameras to ward off unwelcome visitors.

Consider installing solar-powered lights in strategic areas that can charge during the day and automatically turn on at night. They’re energy-efficient, and they’ll add to the ambience while providing additional security.
